    Cup of coffee with Vyvanse??

    I used to take Concerta for my ADHD all the way through grade school and stopped after I graduated. Almost 3 years later I am back on medicine, but this time it is Vyvanse. I am a serious coffee enthusiast and enjoy a cup or two of the wonderful drink most days. On days when I do drink coffee while on the medicine, I seem tense and have a elevated heart rate. The medicine already increases your heart rate, but I don't know how much is from the medicine or how much is from combining both the medicine....

    My ADHD led me to being a meth addict at only 15 years old

    I blame the doctors really. Pumping me full of all these medications that did nothing except make me different. I was about 14 when I discovered the amazing feeling of meth.

    Concerta dose vs effect

    . I’m wondering if anyone else has been prescribed 54 mg of Concerta X 2 per day. I realize this is a high dose but I’m told I metabolize medications very quickly (this goes for all my meds not just the ADHA prescriptions). I’ve been on ADHD meds for over 4 years and have generally been very happy with its effects on my scatterbrained and distracted self, lol. I take my first 54 mg at 6am and the second 54 mg at 2pm. I get between 5-6 hours of sleep daily which is twice as much as I was getting for....

    Needing answers!

    Since I was a child I have struggled immensely with focus. School was horrible and because I didn't fit the cookie cutter way that the school system teaches I was always made to believe that there was something wrong with me. I was unmotivated, didn't try hard enough, didnt listen. I can't count how many report cards I received that had the comments at the bottom. Very sweet, funny and nice little girl who could do so well if she would just put her mind to it. I was tested at the recommendation....

    Living with ADHD and extreme anxiety from a 15 year old perspective

    year 10s perspective on living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. I teach this boy. He has decided to speak out about what it is like living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. Please should you wish to share so together we can break down stereotypes and misconceptions. (Link at the bottom). This is because he wants to show people in particular the so called educators what life behind the label and judgement is REALLY like. However, most importantly "if I can help anyone relate, or stop them ending up....
